Towards a microscopic construction of flavour vacua from a space-time foam model

Abstract:

The effect on flavour oscillations of simple expanding background space–times, motivated by some D-particle foam models, is calculated for a toy model of bosons with flavour degrees of freedom. The presence of D-particle defects in the space–time, which can interact non-trivially (via 'particle capture') with flavoured particles in a flavour non-preserving way, generates mixing in the effective field theory of low-energy string excitations. Moreover, the recoil of the D-particle defect during...
